Stop-And-Frisk Policy Under Scrutiny In Philadelphia

In Philadelphia, a new report shows that the city’s police department is struggling to reform its stop-and-frisk program. The new data shows that nearly seven out of 10 stops last year were of black residents and many of the interactions were unconstitutional. As Bobby Allyn of the Here & Now contributor WHYY reports, the police department is promising to make big changes to the city’s stop-and-frisk policy.
